On November 24, 2021, from 9:00 a.m. to approx. 4:30 p.m., the alliance partners will provide an overview of the current status of their research and development work. The focus here is on high-performance sensor technology, multilayer ceramic technology and silicon-based packaging technology.
In the HIPS (High Performance Sensors) growth core, 12 Thuringian industrial companies and 7 research institutions are working together to bring the already patented SiCer technology, a unique combination of silicon technology (Si) with ceramic multilayer technology (Cer), to application maturity. The common goal of the partners, who are mainly located in the technology triangle Ilmenau – Erfurt – Jena / Hermsdorf of the sensor state Thuringia, is to develop new high-performance sensors based on the SiCer technology and to market them jointly in the future.
The CiS Research Institute is a partner in the development of a sophisticated multi-sensor platform that is able to measure gases and their concentrations, pressures and temperatures precisely and with long-term stability even in aggressive environmental conditions.
In the session “SiCER Technology – Fundamentals and Properties of Silicon-LTCC Composites,” Dr. Michael Hintz of the CiS Research Institute will report on reliable contacting and joining of SiCer substrates.
In the second session, “SiCER Technology – Applications in Sensor Development,” Prof. Thomas Ortlepp, will present the first demonstrators based on SiCER technology.
The online event is technically organized by TU Ilmenau and is free of charge. Guests and interested parties are cordially invited to participate and join the discussion.

The growth core HIPS is funded by the BMBF and includes 3 collaborative projects. The CiS Research Institute is a partner in the development of the SiCER technology platform (joint project 1) and the development of SiCER gas sensors (joint project 3). The funding measure supports the scientific and technological potential of regional initiatives to develop marketable innovations.
